How to unblock any private number

How to unblock a private number

Is someone calling you from a private phone number? You want to know how to unblock it but just don't know how? It's very simple and can be done from almost any cellular phone from almost any cellular phone carrier within the united states. Lets just get to the point. To unblock a private phone number that is calling you simply; Follow the 4 steps below. Cell Phone look ups are useful when you get the number to find out more information about who that person is.

This is the only service that will unblock private numbers and reveal & catch prank callers, stalkers and ex's or anyone who calls you private.... Follow the directions below, they offer 3 plans, each one offers call unmasking, and more like name and address of the caller etc....

  1. Follow this link to TrapCall
  2. Click on, "Pick the Perfect Plan" & choose from 1 of the 3, Bug Trap, Mouse Trap or Bear Trap.

Just follow the video, and you will be unmasking those private callers in no time. This service is better than any smart phone app I have seen.

It will take you thru step by step of how to set your cellular phone up to work. It mainly consists of typing in a variety of numbers to program your cell phone. If you decide to use this service using Try Trap method it will always be free and you will never get billed extra for using this service. From my experience it works great. You don't have to be there to ignore the private call either. You can just not pick it up and it will log it for you in your account on the website. Once installed and programmed on your phone all you need to do is to click ignore or just not answer the call when a private number calls you. The person on the other end will still hear your phone ringing and will assume you didn't answer the call. Before the person even hangs up their phone thinking your'e not answering, your phone will ring back with the unblocked number of the person calling you. It is that easy! And I have used it, know it works, I had to many prank calls calling me so I found this on the Internet when it had first came out before I joined hub pages. This service will also keep logs of all calls for you and recorded. Give it a try. You want this if you hate private callers.

Click here to get Trapcall & finally know who's been calling you private.

      the numbers all get unmasked and stored in your account on the site after you sign up. so yes you can answer the call then log into your account on the site and view it, however its best if possible to reject the call for 100% effectiveness.

      your son will not know trapcall is installed. unless he ignores the unknown number. even then he wouldn't know trapcall was installed unless he knew eccatly what it was.

      when u reject the call... the person on the other line stills hears the phone ringing too they wont even know you rejected it.

      I think it is a very good service. If you happen to have metro pcs then I don't know what to tell you...It is probably because metro pcs just is not large enough for them to seek a market in it like the major companies.
